Bad Bargains With Nature HOW THE OLD DAME GETS HER OWN BACK ON THOSE WHO MEDDLE WITH HER WISE DECREES. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 30 January 1917

Bad Bargains With, Nature • 0. HOW THE OLD DAME GETS HER OWN BACK ON THOSE WHO MED DLE WITH- HER WISE DECREES. 5 Forty, years ago the planters of Trinidad were in despair. Rats were ■ravaging; the great sugar-cane plan tations. Traps, cats, and ferrets had: all proved useless. Ruin stared the* planters, in the face..' - Then some genius suggested the im portation of the mongoose. The mon goose' is a native of India, a charm dug, furry beast, that looks rather like a.' big. and amiable ferret. It makes a "delightful, pet, but its reputation rests ;maiuly on the fact that it is the deadly enemy of the- poisonous /cobra and also „ the • finest ratter, in the world. ; A score of these animals were sent for. Soon there were no more rats. Then the mongoose turned his. atten tion to the chicken yard. • Shortly (^poultry were almost extinct, and eggs at a premium. Next," the mongoose cleared out the native birds, and a plague of caterpillars ensued. How are the mighty' fallen ! To-day there...

'Ware H.M.S. Snake! [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 30 January 1917

'Ware H.M.S. Snake I • So guarded arc our secrcts that we are not allowed to know even the names of the scores of new ships which are being launched almost every day for the Navy. But it is safe to say that, whatever names are being used, the Admiralty are fight ing very shy of those of reptiles. The ill-luck attendant on war-ships bearing the names of reptiles is al most beyond coincidence. The first*of. our fast turbine destroyers was the ! Viper. She was only 312 tons, but j i had engines of 10,000 horse-power, J and could do thirty-five knots. Dur- j ing naval manoeuvres she ran into a fog, struck the rocks o!T the Channel j Islands, and broke into three pieces, i i Three other Vipers have been lost i at different tiroes. I The Cobra, a similar vessel to the j VipeT, broke her back in the^North Sea. Some say she hit a whale ; sojne that it was merely force of wave and weather. In 1890 the Serpent, a gunboat, went on the rocks off the North Coast of Spain, with terrible loss of l...

Medals Commemorate Murders. EXAMPLES OF HUNNISH CULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 30 January 1917

Medals Commemorate I Murders. «—.— EXAMPLES OF HUNNISH CULTURE. Nothing could better illustrate the hideous moral turpitude of Germany, or her falsehood in declaring that in [this war she was the aggressed and not the aggressor, than the amazing medals she has caused to be struck. In the fiftst place she has actually produced a medal \jjhich glorifies the destruction of the "Lusitania." It gives "a clear idea of the German at titude towards the catastrophe. This is cast in bronze, and bears on one side an impression of the great liner, carrying a gun and military nerol plane on deck, curiously, as it dis appeared beneath the waves. "The le gend, "No contraband !" is displayed above it, and, beneath, the, inscrip tion, "The great steamship 'Lusjta nia' sunk by a . German'submarine, May 5, 1915.". The date .is obviously incorrect. The opposite side of 'the medal sHows the figure of Death;standing in the office of,-the! Cunard: iiine selling tickets tor passengers.. The words, "Busines...

Electrified Oat and Potato Crops. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 30 January 1917

Electrified Oat and Potato .Crops. 1 According to the "Electrical Re view," a Miss Dudgeon, of Dumfries, Scotland, has for some years conduc ted important experiments and ob served the effects of electricity upou the growth of potato and oat crops. Most satisfactory results were ex perienced with the potato crops in three successive years, the increased yield per acre with electricity being 1,204 pounds in 1412. I/ISO pounds in 1913, and 2,576 pounds in J!)14. In oats the difference was most con spicuous right from the beginning of the experiment, and the electrically treated crops suffered less than others from the drought which prevailed. ,Tbe difference amounted to 31 per cent, in grain and 31 per cent, in straw in favour of electricity. The Dumfries experiments prove that' un der the influence of the electric dis charge the ingredients in the soil are moresolnble and more easy of assi milation ; that by the aid of electric current sap is enabled to flow more vigorously, and the ...
